Pistis Sophia is known as the Heavenly Mother or Goddess of Faith, Wisdom and Compassion. She is mentioned in a third century Gnostic text which scholars have struggled to interpret or explain the secret messages contained within. Her name is Greek and means ‘Faith’ (Pistis) and ‘Wisdom’ (Sophia) – not a religious faith but arising from a belief of inner knowledge. She is the mother of the zodiac angels and personifies heavenly wisdom which has been born from faith and can triumph over hardship. Over the millennia she has had many names, including Eve, Mother Mary and Quan Yin. She is the selfless face of motherhood, showing kindness and infinite love, the kind of love that asks no questions and does not judge. She has 12 stars above her head which represent the 12 stars of the zodiac containing the mind, body and spirit blueprints of life. She is the ultimate symbol of our capacity to realise our full potential offering wisdom and self belief. As an angel guide she will guide you to find wisdom and comfort you in troubled times.
Aphrodite – is the Greek Goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus who is her Roman equivalent. Aphrodite was created from the sea foam produced by Uranus’s genitals, which had been severed by Cronus. She is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. She had many other names, each emphasizing a different aspect of the same goddess and was also known as Cythera and Cypris both of which claimed to be her place of birth. In Greek mythology the other gods feared that Aphrodite’s beauty might lead to conflict and war through rivalry for her favours; so Zeus married her off to Hephaestus. Despite this Aphrodite followed her own inclinations, and had many lovers. She played a role in the Eros and Psyche legend, and was both lover and surrogate mother of Adonis.
Selene is the Goddess of the moon in Greek mythology, and Her name means just that, “Moon.” She is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia, Themselves children of Gaea. Her brother Helios is the sun, and Her sister Eos is the rosy-fingered dawn. Selene is depicted as a beautiful Goddess who is bathed in and radiates gentle light. By Zeus, She is the mother of daughters Pandia, Erse (the Dew), and Nemea. Some also say She was mother of the Nemean Lion, whom Heracles killed.
Selene was known to have had several lovers and was in love with the mortal prince Endymion who was given immortality and eternal youth by Zeus on the condition that He be eternally asleep, though some say Selene Herself requested that He be always asleep, so that no other might have Him. She would visit Him faithfully every night, and it is said that She had fifty daughters by Him. She was worshipped in Greece especially at the time of the new and the full moon.
